On Monday night Davis, Esq ; a Gentleman of Ireland, cut his Throat with a Razor, at his Lodging in Stanhope- Court, Charing Cross. From Jackson's Letter March 31. Letters from Spain by a french mail arriv'd this Afternoon ad- vise, thet new Levies were making by his Catholick Majesty in ail Parts of that Kingdom; Magazines Establishing and Fortifications Repairing; that this had raised much Speculation, and the generality believ'd that part of thofe Troops are to be employ'd to guard the Prince Don Carlos to Italy, tho' others say that they are desfign'd to Retake Gibralter from the English. The last Accounts they have at Paris from Provence and Lower Languedoc of the 28th part, con- firm the Health there is now in almost all Parts which had been af- flicted with the Contagion, and that they were about raising the Barriers except on the side of Avignon, where the Plague still con- tinued but not so mortal. A Holland Mail also confirms the Prepa- rations of the Porte, and of the Czar of Muscovy both by Sea and Land. At one a- Clock on thursday Morning some Thieves broke in- to the House of Mrs. Watts in Philpot Lane, and rifled a Gentleman's Lodgings, whence they carry'd away 8001. in Cash and 68001. in bank Notes. From the Evening- Post March 31. Stockholm, March 7. M. Bestuchof, the Russian Minister, has had Audience of their Suedish Majesties, and ' tis said he acquainted them, that the Czar has assumed the Title of Emperor of all Russia, not doubting but the Court of Sweden will honour him with that Title: He recommended at the same time the Interest of the Duke of Holstein, who is depriv'd of the greatest Part of his Territories, as being the nearest Heir to the Royal House of Sweden. He added, that the Czar his Master will grant the Swedish Nobility, who are possess'd of Lands in Livonia, and other Territories belonging to the Czar, all the Privileges they had had formerly, upon Condition that they shall not go into any Fo- reign Service, without Leave from the Russian Chancery at Pe- tersburg. Tis said that he has several secret Articles to propose to this Court. A great many of the Inhabitants of this Country insist, that a firm Resolution be taken about the Succession of this Crown,' in Favour of the Duke Holstein; but, on the other Hand, Endea- vours are used by the contrary Party, that no mention ihall be made of that Duke's Affairs, at the next Assembly of the States of this Country. Heidelberg, MARCH 17. An EdicT is published in all parts of the Palatinate, prohibiting all Foreign Officers to list any men in this Electorate: So that a Prussian Captain, who listed one Man for his Master's Service, is arrested, and will not be released till the Peasant is released. We hear the celebrated Steven Gilbert, alias Steven Shammock, the Printer, will be put up at the next Election at Tyburn, and ' tis generally hoped he will succeed; But some are of Opinion he will resign his Interest to his Brother Candidate. N. B. He desires all his Friends, who intend him the Honour to be at his Riding, to set out with him from the Chequer- Inn in Newgate- street: of which timely Notice will be given in all the Publick Prints. From St. James's Evening- Post, Hamburg, April 3. ' Tis said the King of Sweden designs to take a Turn into Germany, as soon as the King of Great- Britain is arrived at Hanover. We have a Report, that the Duke of Holstein is on his Departure from Moscow for Petersbourg from whence he will soon afterwards re- turn into his own Dominions. The Court of Sweden have not yet declar'd themselves on the Proposals of his Czarish Majesty in regard to that Duke. Frankfort, April 5 According to our Letters from Alsace the French continue to replenish their Magazines of Ammunition and Provision with the utmost Expedition, and by up abudance of Hor- ses for remounting their Calvary. They talk of firming a Camp near Stratburgh, as soon as the Grass is up. The Officers of Savoy are still raising Recruits in Switzerland, from whence we have Advice, that the Italians flatter themselves that the Turks will not break this Year with the Emperor and the Republick of Venice ; but they seem allarmed at the Military Preparations in Spain, and the strict Union between between that Crown and France. Tis given out, that Cardinal Al- beroni laying out a Way for a new War in Italy ; for ' tis reported, that he disguises himself almost every Day at Rome, and by that Means is admitted into the Pope's Cabinet, where he and the Friends of the Court of Rome confer about the present Situation of the Affairs of Europe. ' Tis added, that Cardinal Althan, the Imperial Ambas- sador, upon Notice of these Cabals, has sent to Vienna an Express with Letters to inform that Court, that several Matters are private- ly tranfacting to the Prejudice of his Imperial Majesty. Paris, April 8. N. S. Letters from Province and Lower Langue- doc, of the 18th ult. confirm the Recovery of almost all the Places that have been afflicted with the Plague; insomuch, that they talk of removing all the Barriers excepting that Round Avignon, where the Sickness continues, but not with that Fatality as before We hear the King is to be confirmed at Whitsuntide, and that the Court is soon after to go to Versailles for the Summer.

Yesterday his Grace the Duke of Bolton set out with a great Re- tinue for Newmarket. Several Persons who appeared in Tuthill Fields at the late Election of Members of Parliament for Westminster, are dead of the Wounds and Bruises they receiv'd in the Crowd, among them one Allen, who kept a Publick House on Windmil- Hill. near Piccadilly; Yesterday it was currently reported, but we know not what ground, that the King of Poland, and the Regent of Fracne were dead. They write from Cambridge, that on Thursday last when the Lord Harley, and Sir John Hinde Cotton was chosen for the County the Conduit ran with Wine best part of the Day, and Sir Francis, Whichcote, was forced to take Sanctuary in the Lord Harley's Coach, to prevent the Insults of the Populace which were exceeding great. " We hear that the Rev. Dr. Gee Prebendary of Peterborow, is to succeed the Rev. Dr. Cannon in the Deanery of Lincoln. And that the Rev. Dr Mandaville, Chancellor of Lincoln, Is to succeed him in the Prebendary of Westminster. The Letters Yesterday from St. Edmonds Bury give an Account, That Arrundel Coke, Esq; was convey'd in a Coach, about seven a Clock in the morning, to the Place of Execution, which reqUest was granted by Sir Jasper Cullum, Bart. Sheriff of the County, at the De- sire of several of his Relations. The Minister pray'd with him about a quarter of an Hour, and before he went up the Ladder, ask'd him if he knew any thing of Poysoning Mr Crispe's Children; to which he made a short Answer, That it was so long ago, he had forgot. He read a Prayer from a Paper on the Ladder, threw it among the People, and was turn'd off; He sent a Letter about a Week before his Exe- cution, to Sir Jasper Cullum, with one inclosed, requesting that it might not be open'd till three Days after his Death, and Sir Jasper complying with it, the Contents are yet a secret. Woodburn was Hang'd the same Day at the usual Hour; He confess'd, that he gave Mr Crilpe' 3 Child two Sugar- Plumbs by Mr Coke's Order, and that it died some short time after. ' Tis computed that there were 1 11 thousand Spectators present when Wooddburn was Executed. COKE died very sullen ; but Woodburn was very Penetent. 11 From Jackson's Letter, April 3. On Saturday and Yesterday about 20 Persons of the Town of Green- wich were bound over to the Sessions, and about that Number com- mitted to Maidstone Goal, by the Secretary of States Warrant, to be tryed for their Lives, on Account of a desperate Riot about chu- sing Church Wardens, and for refusing to disperse after the Procla- mation against Riots had been 5 times read. The Case was thus, the Tory Party disaproving of the Person propos'd by Sir John Jennings, & c. fell into an Uproar, and beat the other Party out of the Church, as also the Minister, and divers Justices of the Peace, and Pelted with Stones and Dirt, wherewith several were wounded.
